Step into Spring at the North Grenville Sustainability Fair

It’s been a long cold winter and we have all been eagerly anticipating the start of  Spring! It’s time to come out of hibernation and get to know your community better. The 7th Annual North Grenville Sustainability Fair  on Sunday, 27th April  at the North Grenville Municipal Centre is the place to do just that. The Fair runs from 11-3pm and is followed by a lively performance by local entertainers, “The Celtic Rathskallions” at 3pm in the Municipal Theatre.

Look forward to a FREE, fun-filled, family day out at the NG Sustainability Fair featuring  businesses, environmental enthusiasts and community groups; entrepreneurs, artisans and performers. Find out about all the many things that make North Grenville such a great place to live; locally-owned businesses offering sustainable goods and services, local food producers, activity groups and clubs to join, outdoor recreation opportunities, and health and family services.

Looking for a new hobby? Sample the artistic flavor of North Grenville as local music and drama groups give us a taste of their talents by performing short pop-up presentations throughout the day for your entertainment.
Want to learn something new? Join us for a presentation about the important role of honeybees in our food production cycle, given by Lanark County Beekeepers Association president, Paul Lacelle.

Hungry for more?  Tempt your taste buds with goodies from the Kemptville Kinsman Farmers Market stalls or pick-up a delicious locally-sourced lunch to munch on from The Branch Restaurant’s lunch counter. If we are lucky and the sun is shining you may even be able to enjoy it outside whilst talking with local Electric Vehicle owners who love to share their experiences. Just remember not to talk with your mouthful!

Feeling creative? Get crafty in the kid’s area with many great activities including our ever- popular button-making machine. Exercise your green thumbs by planting some seeds to take home at the Kemptville Horticultural Society table. Hint…both are great Mother’s Day gift ideas!

Don’t forget to fill out a door prize ballot; we have some great prizes to give away!
